  • I LOVE GOD'S WORD

    I completely agree with Regina Wright with what she said about there being power when we proclaim God's promises. I love God's Word and it is amazing how it can transform our lives completely in the most wonderful ways. I really believe that more people should declare, or rather pray God's Word over their lives and also speak His blessings upon their lives, and also the lives of those around them, this will positively impact so many lives...Recently, I began a project to make framed messages that can be personalized to give as a gift to someone dear to you, if you care to know more about this then please feel free to write to me.

    Always sincere,
    Nic.love
